The American Mold Builders Association (AMBA) recently awarded $10,000 in scholarship funds to students of AMBA members nationwide. The Annual Scholarship Program continues to demonstrate AMBA's commitment to the industry, education and offering valuable member benefits. “The AMBA Annual Scholarship Program underwent some critical changes in application criteria in order to better channel funds back into the industry to support those going into moldmaking or a related trade,” said AMBA Managing Director Kym Conis. To date, the AMBA's Annual Scholarship Program has awarded over $220,000 since its inception in 1991.

Each year the national office of the AMBA awards scholarships to the employees or dependants of employees of AMBA member companies. The Annual Scholarship Program is designed to help facilitate education in moldmaking in the U.S. This scholarship's priority is to assist students who desire to pursue a career in mold design, CAD/CAM programming for machine tools, machine tool skills or moldmaking, plastics industry manufacturing (including plastics engineering, plastic part design or plastics processing technician) and other areas of continued training/education. The AMBA wishes to congratulate all ten deserving students and wishes them the best in their endeavors. For a complete list of scholarship award recipients, visit www.amba.org.
